My love of photography began when I discovered the magic of the darkroom in High School. I practiced taking photos of my friends in the playground as I learned to use a film camera.
After school, I worked in the cinema industry in Gold Class and became a projectionist. Those years help pay for flying lessons to follow my dream of becoming an airline pilot. I started flying solo but later chose to explore my creative side instead.
I studied graphic design and advertising before graduating with a designer position in aviation news publishing. However, after a few years my love of photography made me leave to start my own business.
When I think back, the years in cinema resulted in two things – a love for cinematography but also the importance of great customer service.
Those skills have become so valuable when photographing people. I believe my interactions make a big difference in helping you feel comfortable, resulting in better photographs.
I use digital or film cameras depending on the project. I love the natural, film aesthetic and approach my digital editing with that look in mind. I always make the extra effort to travel to places that represent your story best.
If this sounds like what you're looking for in a photographer, I'd love to hear from you.
